Website Removes Alleged Remarks by Prospective Sephardi Chief Rabbi Urging Revenge Against Secular Jews

Spokesperson for Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu says reported quote calling on people to bring secular children back into the religious fold was delivered during the emotionally charged 2005 Gaza disengagement.

Incendiary remarks against secular Jews, attributed to a rabbi in the running for the position of chief Sephardi rabbi, have been removed from the news website where they first appeared, shortly after Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu's alleged comments resurfaced on social networks.
